I finished renovating our hall bathroom last month and have been looking for the perfect shelves for storage above the toilet. I’ve been on the hunt for a good hanging shelves diy project and saw the prettiest turnbuckle wall shelf.  It was linked to this darling turnbuckle shelf kit but because they’re so darling, they have a small waitlist. I wanted to get mine done quickly so I headed to Home Depot to make my own diy turnbuckle shelf.  Here’s the bathroom after and before pictures to show you how big of a difference bathroom shelves make!

TIP: To push U-Bolt all the way down so it’s nice and tight, you may need to hammer it. Just place a piece of wood or cloth over the top beforehand so you don’t scratch or dent the top of the bolt. If you hit it too hard down, use the cloth to cover the hammer then pull the U-Bolt back up until it’s the right height to secure the nuts on the bottom.

How to Mount Turnbuckle Shelves

This hardware was super easy to apply to the wall. I centered it over the toilet then added about 6″ above the bottom of the shelf. I like how the hardware slips over the inner screws for a seamless look without the screws showing.

DIY Turnbuckle Shelf Screwset

To get the shelf to not shift around, we followed Kara Paslay’s idea of screwing in a 4″ screw into the shelf on the backside and pre-drilling a hole in the wall opposite. Here are their words: “With all your pieces assembled, you are ready to start hanging the shelves. The cables will support the front side of each shelf, but you will need to support the side against the wall. I will show you what I did, but feel free to come up with your own ideas. I drilled two holes in the back of each the shelves that was large enough to accommodate the head of a drywall screw. Once I laid out where I wanted the shelves on the wall I screwed corresponding screws in the wall. I made sure there was enough screw in the wall to support the weight, but left about a 1/2″ of the screw sticking out so there was plenty for the shelf to rest on. We are lucky enough to have 1×6’s behind all of our drywall so I didn’t have to worry about hitting a stud or adding anchors, but most likely you will, so think about this before you start drilling the holes in the back of each shelf and plan accordingly.

This doesn’t affect the weight but stops the shelf from flipping or moving around. Super sturdy! It took a little bit of muscle to get those U-Bolts in place and I’m horrible at math so I had to do a little wood filler, sssh! BUT this is what Lolly Jane is all about, getting things done and not waiting on help! (My poor hubby worked 60 hours of overtime so I was on my own!) What do you think?
